    Dear Auntie,
    You were always there for our families, in your quiet, humble way you carried on the family Stoney traditions, language, and culture while allowing for mistakes from all of us. You were the one who all of us would reach to when we had problems and when you had enough you would gently try to show us that it’s all going to be okay. You had simple recipes of life to get over the heartache and pain and just move forward.
    Your physical body couldn’t take this life anymore so we think you will be doing more work with our loved ones that have also passed. You get to join your Mom and Dad and all the loved ones that have passed and touched our lives.
    We will always remember and respect what you have given us.
    Love the Family
